Blurb: Beneath the Deep: From the sea, mysterious things can arise.

Wayne needed a place to hide when an angry ex-boyfriend sends questionable pictures to several board members at the school where he teaches. Substituting as a lighthouse keeper for his buddy’s father, he finds stark beauty in how the waves crash on the rocks and solace in their sound.

His buddy, Easton, drops by with pizza and wine to buoy his spirits and together they find a naked man on the beach. Bringing the injured man inside his temporary home, Wayne learns the stranger’s name is Zarek, and he doesn’t want to be taken to the hospital. Against his better judgment, maybe because the sexy, black-haired man kissed like a God, Wayne agrees…even though he knows the man’s story is bogus.

When Wayne learns the truth, can he wrap his mind around everything and accept his new reality? Or will he wipe his hands of the sexy Zarek at his earliest opportunity?

Review: Wayne needed a place to hide and to heal from what had happened back home. His ex sent pictures of them having sex to his boss, and now the school had to make a decision on whether he could stay teaching or not. So for now he was watching over the lighthouse for his best friend’s father. He had just not expected to find a naked man on the beach. A naked man who was not all the way human, what a shocker.

Zarek was behind the movement of being allowed to hang around the humans, several hundred years of not being allowed to. However someone is out to get him, and now he has to hide out. Although finding his mate was a plus to his hiding out.

Charlie has given us a new series that is slightly different than her previous ones and I am loving it. Although I wish that they were a bit longer with more to it, this was a pretty damn good start.

It did come off a bit rushed to me however it doesn’t take away from the story itself. I loved how there is some humor mixed in with a serious tone to it. It had caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. I had fun reading it and would definitely recommend it.

Blurb: Morris intends to stay in his arranged mating for a month, but his new mate has other ideas.

Since he was seventeen, Morris has been working as an escort for Critters on Call. It was the best way for him to get away from his abusive father, but going all over the world for his clients has kept him away from his brother who hasn’t been the same since the last beating their father gave him.

His brother, Jeremy, is in one of the best care centers in the world. But that level of care is expensive, and their uncle, who is in charge of paying for Jeremy’s bills, has come for Morris. For years he was allowed to live his life with the knowledge that Jeremy was being taken care of, but now unless Morris agrees to an arranged mating to an elk in Washington, and pretends to be a virgin on top of it all, their uncle is threatening to move Jeremy out of the care center and into somewhere horrible.

Harrison isn’t sure why the African shifters are seeking mates within the Washington elk herd, and he doesn’t much care, either. All he wants is to make his family happy, and that means being mated to an elephant he’s never met. Having his own modified version of virginity has always been fine with him, up until he realizes that being with Morris for the first time could have been great. But Morris is nothing like he expected either, and once they get the initial awkwardness out of the way, Harrison is excited to spend his life with his new mate.

But Morris has other plans. The deal he made with his uncle was to be mated for a month, and he’s counting down the days. Then control over Jeremy’s life will transfer to him and they can finally be free of their family’s abuse.

It would have been a good plan, too, and one he could have lived with, if his past as an escort hadn’t come back at the worst possible time.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This is the third book in the Signed, Sealed and Delivered series.

Morris is an escort, I call it being a prostitute, making money to pay for his brother’s care after his abusive father beat him. His uncle demands he mate an elephant shifter or else face the consequences. On top of that his past won’t leave him alone.

I really liked that Morris was determined to do whatever it took to care for his brother even though I didn’t care for what he had to do. His father and uncle left a lot to be desired as I couldn’t stand either of them.

Harrison wants Morris and will stop at nothing to have him as his.

It was an o.k. read.

Blurb: Mal isn’t the only human in the Gillham Pack, but he is the only unmated one. He knows most members view him as an outsider for that, but he has his friends, and it’s enough for him. That’s what he tries to convince himself of anyway.

Will still isn’t over Heath, even though his ex-boyfriend mated with Jayden nine months ago. It’s not only the fact that Heath mated that hurts him. Heath lost his memory, and he doesn’t remember Will and the years they had together. Will knows it’s not Heath’s fault, but he still keeps his distance, even if that means keeping away from the only family he has.

Will and Mal crash into each other and Will immediately realizes what Mal is to him. The distance between their homes put a strain on their budding relationship, as does the reappearance of Mal’s abusive ex-boyfriend, and the ever-present danger of the new council trying to get rid of the pack.

Will they be able to find solutions to their problems or will one of them finally tear them apart?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Gillham Pack Series collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This series is also connected to the Whitedell Pride series.

Mal followed his friend to the Gillham Pack and is not the only human there. However he feels like he is not truly wanted there because he is not mated. On top of all that, his ex won’t leave him alone. Even changing his number, Paul still manages to contact him. So his best friend suggested he go visit the Whitedell Pride to get away. He just had not expected to find a mate, his mate there.

Will had been best friends with Heath for nearly their entire lives and lovers for two of those. So when Heath found his mate, Will was left out in the open. Heath had no memory of their lives in the past, so their friendship was suffering because of it.

He needed to get away for them, but going to the pride house was probably the biggest shock. It seems he has found his mate, a mate that needed him. They have dangers it would seem coming at them from all corners and he was going to keep his mate safe.

I would definitely recommend reading this book.

Blurb: Rodney is over his head in gambling debts when the sharks come after him—to pay them off, he’ll make a deal that will change his life forever.

Panda shifter Rodney is in trouble. His gambling debts are well over what he can ever hope to pay off, and now the sharks are after him. They find him one night and Rodney thinks he’s in for a beating, but instead they trade him to Lady Leo, who owns an exclusive kink club. Kinky Kritters isn’t for the faint of heart, and Rodney is definitely out of his element. He has no idea how to be submissive, and he’s frightened, especially when his hands are tied behind his back, he’s blindfolded, and he’s put up for auction.

Mordechai is a panther who’s been with plenty of shifters, but never a panda. He has money to burn and a curiosity about Rodney that won’t be easily satisfied. One night isn’t going to cut it, though. Not when he’s thinking about Rodney even when he’s not at the club.

What started as simple curiosity might be able to lead to far more, if only this cat is willing to take a chance on love with a panda.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review:  When I first started reading this story, I noticed that it was a bit longer then some of the other series that these two authors had out.  Which gave me confidence in what this story will be like.  However I must admit though that it didn’t pan out the way I had thought it would.  It came off very rushed, like the authors were just trying to get pieces wrote to turn in.  There wasn’t a lot of meat to it, and not a lot of detail either.  I am afraid that I am not really sure what to expect from the next book.

Rodney has gotten himself into a bit of trouble and now his ass was in even more trouble. He should have never started gambling, because now he owed the sharks. Now the sharks had come for him, but he had not expected to be sold off to a sex club. He had not expected the sexy panther to purchase him. It would seem Mordechai wants him for more than just a rump of fun.

I have to say that the title and series name was what caught my attention. I must admit though that the story just didn’t come together like it should have. There is some mild BDSM play but really it was just being tied up and being ordered around. There was no actual build up and the story just moved to fast to make it anything more than just a quick and dull read. It just didn’t developed the way it should have, and that was a big disappointment.

The story had pretty good potential but it was just basic filler and a hit in spots. There was just no meat to it. I had thought that maybe after these two authors having done a few series together, that their work would grow, but so far I am not seeing it. I was disappointed in this story, it had a great start but that was all.

I guess we will see what the next book will be like.

Blurb: It is said that the Devil is in the detail, but what if the Devil was in you?

The world is at war, a war determined to involve Eli, whether he likes it or not. Hitler, his dark army of feral vampires, and even the Devil himself, all conspire against Eli, leaving him no choice but to fight back, risking Malachi’s soul in the process.

Eli is determined to find Ethan’s father, no matter the cost to himself or Malachi, and in a place filled with death and unending cruelty, Eli realizes that some truths should remain buried, and some truths are just too terrible to bear.

When the old enemy, demons from Eli’s dark past, find him once more, they reveal a secret so impossible, so terrible, that it pushes Eli to the very edge of his endurance. They took his boyfriend from him once, and the secrets that they reveal about the man he once loved threaten to strip Eli of everything that he holds dear, pushing him to the edge of his sanity.

Eli thought that he had nothing left to lose, but at Welwelsburg Concentration Camp, he realizes that he was very wrong.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This is the second book in the Dead Camp series and boy does it pack a punch to the gut.

Eli and Mal infiltrate a death camp in order to free the prisoners from the atrocities taking place within. Eli goes in as a prisoner and gets a firsthand experience of ll the horrible conditions and treatments of said camp. I was so angry on behalf of all those within that suffered.

Mal goes in as a guard and experiences the evil deeds done by the guards and those in charge. I felt Mal’s disgust with the whole situation. I was also worried about Mal as he was a ghost possessing someone else’s body and feared that he would not make it.

As with any story of this magnitude there are mysteries to be solved past enemies to be brought down and above all else trying to keep your sanity in a place where evil rules. It was an epic journey of sorts that was filled with sorrow, horror and survival. The scene that actually made me bawl like a baby was the shower. The injustice and seeming disregard for human life simply because of who they were was almost more than I could take.

The author does a wonderful job in the details and storytelling. I felt as though i was actually there witnessing everything.

I loved this book and am looking forward to the next book in this intense yet fascinating series.

Cosmo Ruckman is very good at breaking and entering. He’s had years of practice, starting from the time he was a child. Despite his criminal past, he manages to earn a spot on the Demon Elite team. Cosmo has had a mad crush on Derek Kyle from the first moment he met him. Since Derek never gave him the time of day, moving on was easy when Demon Elite left the agency.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Demon Elite collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. I would start with Lakehouse Security first though.

Cosmo’s life growing up was not a picnic and he had gone to jail a couple of times until Justine recruited him. Now he worked for the best teams. From the moment he met Derek, he was fascinated and wanted the man. Too bad Derek never looked twice at him.

Derek has wanted Cosmo from the first moment he saw him, but there was no fraternization among teammates. After catching Cosmo breaking in, he knew it was time to switch sides. He had his suspicions that his boss was doing illegal shit, but now he had to protect the man he was falling in love with.

I can honestly tell you that this is going to be one of those types of series that you can’t put down and have to read more than once. It is the perfect story for me and gave me all that I needed. I love the way all the feelings they felt was involved in this story.

I had a blast reading it and I can’t wait to read the next story.

Leo, a cheetah shifter, knows he will be married off to a man of his parents’ choosing. He won’t have any choice in the matter. When his father informs him Antonio will be his mate, he doesn’t exactly like the man, but is determined to make the best of it.

But Cam and his mate are out on vacation and Leo finds Taruk at their house instead.

Taruk doesn’t exactly understand the recent trend in the elk herd he belongs to toward having arranged marriages, but he’s not overly worried about it, since he’s not high on the pecking order. After seeing how happy his best friend Jenner is with his mate, Cam, Taruk wonders if it’s not so bad. When Leo shows up while he’s house sitting, he responds to the fear and sadness emanating from the young cheetah. The two are drawn together only to be torn apart when Leo’s promised mate arrives and takes Leo away.

The two struggle with the feelings their brief encounter has awakened. Then when disaster strikes, only that new love is enough to hold them both together…

Review: I’m not really sure what exactly happened with this book. Just when things turn dark for Taruk and Leo the story does a complete 180. I was disappointed with this as it almost seems like the story was dropped then picked up again without adding anything in between.

I did not like this story.

Blurb: Into the Paranormal World: Change is never easy, but it is oftentimes worth the painful effort.

Taolma is a young boa constrictor shifter who has recently been reunited with his father after almost two decades apart. He currently lives with a clutch of gargoyles on the outskirts of a small town, but he doesn’t mind. There’s a massive arboretum to sun in and a pond to swim in, plus plenty of trees to climb.

Due to the small town atmosphere, Taolma doesn’t expect to find his mate any time soon. Imagine his surprise, excitement, and disappointment when he walks into a hotel room and discovers his mate. Quinn is slender, muscular, and handsome.

Oh, and he’s a hunter recovering from claw-wounds received by a gargoyle. Taolma hadn’t planned on settling down any time soon, but the pull to mate is undeniable.

Can he figure out how to convince a hunter that not all shifters are evil, come to grips with Fate giving him a mate when so young, and of course convince a man who hates paranormals that they were meant to be together?

Quinn had not only been captured but had been injured when he tried to rescue another hunter. A hunter that did not want rescued. Quinn’s wife and son had been murdered by a vampire and he wanted revenge. After being recruited he helped them capture or kill the paranormals. He just had not expected Taolma.

Taolma had been two years old when his father had been captured by the hunters and sold. His mother and step father took care of him, and when his mom passed away his stepfather helped him try to find out what happened to his father. Now he had been reunited with him and was living with the gargoyles. It would seem he had a mate, a mate that hated paranormals. However the pull to them both, shows them that fate is always right.

It was the perfect story for me and I loved it.

Blurb: For these two, having an arranged marriage could either be a catastrophe, or the best thing that’s ever happened to them.

Cam has always known that his mating would be arranged by his father, and his best hope is for a mate who respects him and could eventually be friends with him. He has no choice in the matter and is resigned to the worst-case scenario of a mate he’ll end up hating for the rest of his life.

His biggest worry is that he’ll no longer be able to keep his best friend in his life. If his mate says he can’t have friends, that will be the end of it and he won’t be able to say a thing against that decision. It’s his worst fear, and he can’t keep his tears at bay even during his own mating ceremony as he feels like he’s losing the only real friend he’s ever had.

Jenner isn’t entirely sure why his new mate looks like he’s going to his death. He wants to be friends with Cam, and his traditions make it hard to get close to him. His father wanted to make sure he fell in love before he was thirty and thought mating him to someone would be the best way to get that accomplished.

Jenner is looking forward to getting to know his new mate, if only Cam will let that happen. The little glimpses he’s had of the real Cam tell him he’s been mated to a feisty man who won’t back down, and Jenner wants more time with that side of him and a lot less with the one who only wants to do what’s expected of them and looks absolutely miserable all the time.

Having an arranged mating isn’t ideal, but for Cam and Jenner it might be the best thing for them both.

Review: Cam, a fox shifter doesn’t want an arranged marriage but knows he has no choice. His biggest fear is that he won’t be able to see Leo again afterwards. Jenner is intrigued by his mate and wants to get to know both sides of him. But with misunderstanding after misunderstanding he is finding that difficult to do.

While I liked most of the characters in this book I felt it weird that it was written with an arranged marriage. Who does that these days? I felt so bad for Cam having his choices and freedom decided by someone else.

Well written with a lot of drama and some suspense made this book and o.k. read.

Blurb: When the pack is attacked, Asher hunts the one responsible, however, fate has other plans as it throws not one but two obstacles his way in the form of male mates—one human, one vampire. Lies are uncovered and truths shared as Asher’s fears about what is to come are confirmed.

Asher is used to being overlooked and not taken seriously as the joker brother. It doesn’t usually bother him. When the pack house is attacked, Asher takes on the mission to hunt down the one responsible. He is tired of their enemy having the upper hand. If he can hunt down Kimi, then they may finally be a step ahead. The only problem is that he can’t only think about himself now because a confession from a wayward pup causes him to become a guardian of a teenager.

Things only get more complicated when a human named Tyler helps him out in a night club to corner Kimi and gets kidnapped for his trouble. Asher is given a choice—trade newly caught Kimi or Tyler dies.

Corralling an uncooperative Kimi gets him up close and personal with the vampire, but instead of wringing his neck like he wants to, Asher finds himself drawn to the unmistakable scent of his mate.

If that wasn’t enough to test him, the proof the kidnappers deliver to him comes with a stunning revelation—Tyler is also his mate.

Review: Each book in the Blood Moon Pack Alliance Series collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

For me once I start reading I can’t move until I find out how they end. These characters are also very fascinating and unique to me. To top it off it aren’t just two sexy men but three in this mating.

Asher’s life is about to get more complicated. He goes to talk to the coven and ends up bringing home Jake to live with shifters. On the way he finds this vampire that not only captures his attention but he senses danger there also. Kimi is a traitor to the coven and to the pack, or that is what everyone assumes.

Kimi runs and Asher goes to find him. Taking with him his newly adopted teenage son. To his surprise he finds a human and saves his ass from kidnappers, only to find out that the man is his mate. Then to make matters even crazier it would seem Kimi is their mate also. Kimi has a major secret that could get them all killed but his mates are determined to help him in all ways.

Now I must admit that I wasn’t too sure about Kimi. He had a darkness to him that made him seem even guiltier then normal added to the fact that he even made Jake weary and I thought for sure he was evil. Then once you get to know him, you can see that he is the perfect mate for the others. I wasn’t really sure about this story because of the dark tone, but that only lasted a total of five seconds.

I would definitely recommend reading this book.
